About Me:

My name is Olivia and I am a senior at Butler University. I spend most of my time in Lilly Hall as a BFA Dance Performance major. When not in rehearsal or ballet class, I write papers for my English Literature second major. In my super-abundant, never-lacking, this-is-highly-sarcastic spare time, I attempt to cook in my apartment kitchen, watch Youtube videos of ballet, knit sweaters that never seem to come to an end, and read books both silly and serious. If I could take any class at Butler just for kicks, I'd go for DiffyQ.

Tasty Things I’ve Eaten

Coppélia is coming, Coppélia is coming! I’m so excited. I’m also fairly busy — and I cannot think of anything to write in a blog post that wouldn’t take longer than the time I have allotted. Therefore I shall share instead the pictures I have readily on hand, thanks to my snazzy new phone.

Tasty things I have eaten (today):

This is Easter bread my boyfriend made. It was very intense (lots of kneading and yeast-blossoming and so on) and very tasty. Easter was a wonderful day, by the way! I went to the Butler Catholic Community Mass on campus, which was followed by a brunch/lunch. The asparagus was so good! After that, it was back to the apartment for a quick nap before I headed out to go with my boyfriend to the dinner his jazz studies professor was hosting. It was day filled with socializing over good food, though I still have to say I missed being at my grandparents’ house with the rest of my family!

Homemade tortilla pizza. ‘Nuff said.

A girl gave me a voucher for a free tall drink at the campus Starbucks… so I enjoyed a mocha before my pas class!

I ate other, healthier things as well, promise! They just weren’t as tasty.

And thus ends this rather uninformative blog post. My apologies.

Easter at Butler

When I was a freshman, I was sorely disappointed at being unable to go home for Easter. Some kind relatives (well, my godmother’s parents) took me and a friend in that Sunday. My friend formed a special connection with the cat.

Both last Easter and this Easter I stayed on campus and attended the Butler Catholic Community Mass. Over the years, I don’t miss my family any less, but I feel a little better spending Easter on campus. My friends here seem more like family each day.

Last Easter, I went with two dancers to the post-Mass lunch on the patio and passed a peaceful afternoon in the same vein. This Easter, I went to the lunch again. Afterwards, I shared Flying Cupcake cupcakes with my boyfriend, who had never tried them before. We have Red Velvet Elvis and Salted Chocolate Carmel. Delicious.

Holidays away from home are strange still, but finding your family at college makes Butler more like a second home.
